The Sedimentology Research Group carries out a broad range of work into modern and ancient surface processes using field-based, experimental and theoretical approaches.
We host the Sorby Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, a NERC-recognised facility. We have strong collaborative links with the hydrocarbon industry and are the base for several industry-funded consortia. The research we do can be applied to both today’s environmental problems and help us plan for the those of the future.
